From St. John Bosco to Bl. Pierre Giorgio Frassati to St. John Paul II, saints with a particular skill at reaching the hearts of young men know that when you bring boys out into creation they become more open to the Creator. This experience of the outdoors is needed in a world saturated with media and materialism, especially in the teen years. Fraternus Excursions are designed with a common theme and goal, namely, learning about our true identify as men. Sometimes only when we disconnect from daily life and go into the wild can we realize this true identity.
Once a year the entire Fraternus Brotherhood comes together at the National Fraternus Ranch – a weeklong adventure and retreat.
